Conquista Malbec 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes are hand harvested at optimum ripeness from the foothills of the Andes Mountains in the San Rafael region of Mendoza. The near-desert conditions are remedied by water from the snow-capped Andes that also guard the area from radical temperature shifts that would otherwise hurt the harvest, and instead account for better fruit flavor and maturation in the clean, pollution-free mountain air. Mendoza rests on the San Andreas Fault and experiences near weekly small earthquakes. These mini-quakes shift layers of sand, clay, and loam with gravel and limestone, providing Mendoza’s vineyards with superb root nutrients and variety.

Another one of those great 10 dollar Malbecs. Cherry flavors with smooth tannins.

Drinkable alone. A bit of oak with Acceptable fruit forward. Worth it for the price off $6-8 bucks

Cherry, tobacco, white pepper. Punchy but smooth tannins. Some oak on the finish.

There's nothing overtly offensive here, but I find it hard to recommend this wine for any reason. I'm having trouble even finding a distinguishing characteristic to write about. I think it's just a little too acidic, without enough flavor to balance it out. I love malbec, and this wine did almost nothing for me.

definite tannins, paired well with food, especially chocolate.

This red wine from Mendoza hits all the right notes. An aromatic cherry nose and big round tannins make this a great entry-level Malbec.

Tasting Notes:

Conquista Malbec is bright and fruity with plum, spice and red fruit aromas. It is full bodied with good acidity and layers of blackberries and blueberries, hints of mocha and spice on the lingering finish.
